Divorce is a method of terminating a marriage contract. Legally, a divorce will give each person the right to marry someone else, divide the couples assets and debts, and determine the future care and custody of their children. Divorce is always difficult. Regardless of who decides to file for divorce, it is very important that you seek the assistance of a family law attorney.

Consulting a knowledgeable family law attorney early in the process is one of the best ways to preserve your own rights and interests.Before a divorce may be granted, there are usually three basic issues that must be resolved – (1) Spousal support; (2) Division of the Marital Property (both debts and assets); and (3) Child Custody, Visitation, and Support (if there are children involved).

If a couple can agree on all three of these issues in writing, they will be granted an uncontested divorce and avoid litigation. Conversely, if there is disagreement on any of the basic issues, a contested divorce exists.
